Benjamin is R-rated dark comedy that follows the story of Ed, a father trying to help his son Benjamin, who he suspects of having a drug addiction. Its official synopsis reads: “A family calls in an intervention for their fifteen year old son who they think suffers from drug addiction. During the intervention process, it becomes apparent that the ones who confront Benjamin’s addiction the most have many problems of their own.”
“This film tackles serious subject matter — our kids and the temptations and challenges they face — but tells it through the lens of a familiar cast of comedic actors who make the topic approachable and poignant,” Saget said (via Variety). “An exclusive Redbox release brings the important message of the film directly to communities nationwide that are facing the battle of addiction.”
